Summary: Harry gets captured just before the fifth year. While in Voldemort's dungeon he meets a young girl who may not be what she seems.
A/N: I know some of you are a little confused with how Voldemort died so let me explain. Remember in chapter 6 Dumbledore said and I quote "There is a reason for that. It is said that if a true pure being and a true evil being sire a child it will be the "bringer of the light". If the evil being was to cause any harm to the "bringer" it would destroy him." So when he cast "Crucio" on her he literally killed himself. I hope this makes things clearer.
Chapter 13: Acceptance
Alennia sat on the edge of the cliff and the sea breeze blew her hair into her face. It had been a week since her father had died. A week since she had killed him. She had stayed in the house up until now but she just had to get out of there. No one understood why she was feeling the way she was. They all saw his death as a blessing. She was the only one that felt guilty and ashamed. Alennia was so deep in her thoughts that she didn't hear the footsteps behind her. She jerked around when a hand touched her shoulder.
"Sirius, you scared me."
"Sorry bout that." He said as he sat down beside her.
"How did you find me?"
"Took a wild guess. The more important question is what are you doing up here?"
"Just thinking. Trying to work past the guilt."
"Its not your fault you know. He left you no choice. Besides, technically you didn't lay a wand on him. He did it to himself."
"That doesn't make me feel any better. I know it's not my fault but I can't help but feel guilty."
"Just think about what I said and don't stay out here for too long." Sirius gave her a brief hug then disappeared with a pop. Alennia lay down on the grass and took a deep breath. Soon she was fast asleep.
"Alennia. Alennia, sweetie wake up."
Alennia slowly sat up and looked around for the heavenly voice she just heard. She finally looked beside her and her mother sat there with a white aura around her. She was just like in her other dreams. Angela had long black just like her daughter's and her blue eyes shone with love and warmth.
"Mama?" Alennia said weakly.
"Yes, baby. Its ok, Mama's here." Angela said as Alennia collapsed into her arms and began to cry.
"I killed him, Mama. I killed him."
"Look at me Alennia. You did what you had to. He gave you no choice. I know it doesn't make it feel better but just remember that and you'll get through this. For what it's worth I am so proud of you." Angela said as she looked at her daughter.
"For what? For killing someone?!"
"No, for not wanting to kill him no matter what he has done. That is unconditional love. Sadly, it is something your father could never understand."
"I don't want you to go, Mama." She said and hugged her even tighter.
"And I don't want to go baby. But I have to. Don't worry though you'll see me again. Have faith my darling." Angela said as she gave her daughter one last hug.
"I love you so much, Mama." Alennia said with tears streaming down her face.
"I love you too, Baby."
Alennia sat up and noticed that she was back at the beach. Her heart still ached but not as much. And she knew she could accept this and get through it. She knew she would be ok, somehow.
A/N: I know most people don't like stories where Harry isn't the hero but that's too bad. Anyway I hope you guys liked this story. This is the last chapter but I might do a sequel later. Until then thanks for everything and R&R.
